fairly simple, back in the day we used to host fairly regular competitions. Ranging from best model of the week, best theme based character, etc.

this is something I want to bring back, but just wondering, If I was to host a another one, whether it be 2d or 3d art. Would I have enough user participation to make it worth the trouble.


the last competition, a naruto theme character was won by a landslide (by me :) )because there were only 3 entries, it's something I would like to avoid happening again.


the rules would be simple, no edits, no teams (unless its a full team competition), and there would be a triangle limit.


use this thread to pitch contest ideas, or discuss the topic.


there can be no physical prizes, and I cannot grant anything special on the forums to the winner, so its for bragging rights only. This isnt polycount, Im not rich and I'm not backed by gaming companies either.

I wanted to start one, but everyone said we should wait for more people who are starting out modeling to try but, I would hope there are enough around still to have one.


Personally I would like to see one on Personal Idols.

well I'm always up for some competitions, but I only do environment work (assets and stuff) so I suggest a mixed competition based on a certain theme (example: Horror, Scifi, Fantasy etc).

Doing that would allow for characters to be created/environment models to be done based around the theme so it wouldnt just limit the comp to character artists.

Anyways, I'm in a lecture so I might suggest something else when I'm finished here ;O

as long as there's no "make your fav dbz character lolololol" type competitions, i'm cool.

i don't mind competitions which are steered toward a certain criteria, but i don't want to be limited to a specific anime or something.

Maybe.... We could have a team competition where we have a Player Modeler and 3D Area Modeler. That way we have a Model and a place for it to stand.

I can't make any competitions with rewards on the forums, I am just a moderator.

I have been here 6 years though (literally) So Im sure I could pull a few strings and get my status updated, or get a reward set aside, but I do not want to push my luck.



so any rewards would have to be provided by the contest creator, most likely just a little "e-trophy" and bragging rights.
